Xûr (and a horse made of stars) invites you to play a game. Spin a giant wheel, impress the eternal equine, and leave footprints in gold as you make your way through Xûr’s Treasure Hoard.

Exotic Quest

Reunite with an Exotic Sidearm (Forerunner) that you may recognize from adventures long ago. It led you to glory then and it will do so again.

Gameplay Info

Activity Streaks

When you run Dares of Eternity at least two times consecutively (back to back, without going to orbit or starting any other activity including going to the Tower), you’ll start an Activity Streak. While this streak is active, subsequent Dares of Eternity runs will grant an additional +25 Strange Favor per streak bonus. The streak caps out at five consecutive completions. The following actions will break your Activity Streak in Dares of Eternity:

  • Visiting a destination
    • Exceptions include the Tower, H.E.L.M, Xur’s Treasure Trove, and returning to orbit
  • Leaving mid-Eternity run
    • This completely removes your streak
  • Playing another activity
    • This completely removes your streak

Daily Bounties

Make sure to grab daily bounties and additional bounties from Xur as they grant XP, complete them in Dares of Eternity:

  • Complete 1x Dares of Eternity.
  • Defeat 4x champions.
  • Defeat 30x enemies with kinetic weapons.
  • Defeat enemies with Arc damage; Arc melee kills grant more progress.

Rank Up Rewards

When you reach rank 16, you can reset your Strange Favor, which will reset Xur’s offerings. You may only reset your Strange Favor five times per season.

Final Boss Encounter

The final bosses in Dares of Eternity are quite simple but do require a bit of mechanics to get through. Here’s what to do with each boss-type:

Final BossHow to Complete
HiveCrotaKill the Swordbearer Knights walking out of the portals around the arena to get a Hive sword. Attack Crota with the sword to do damage to him. He will spawn two aspects of himself mid-encounter, and damaging them will count towards the total boss damage.
VexZydronDodge the detainment protocol walls that Zydron spawns in the first phase. Players can shoot themselves out of detainment. When ads spawn in, kill all the Keybearers to remove Zydron’s shield and begin the damage phase. Repeat the process until he’s defeated.
CabalValus Ta’aurcDamage the boss when he first spawns in, until he activates his shield. Players should now kill the glowing Siegebringers, which will trigger Thresher ships to arrive. Once destroyed, they will spawn Dare Cores. Throw the cores into the two generators next to the boss to destroy his shield and begin the final damage phase.
